Adam Vinatieri

Adam Matthew Vinatieri (born December 28, 1972) is an American football placekicker currently playing for the Indianapolis Colts. He has played in five Super Bowls, four with the New England Patriots and one with the Colts. Though he was on the roster for another Super Bowl appearance by the Colts in 2009, he was injured and did not play in the game. Vinatieri won Super Bowls in 2001, 2003, and 2004 with the Patriots, as well as 2006 with the Colts. He is the first kicker ever to win four Super Bowl rings.

Vinatieri has been called "Mr. Clutch" by the media due to his reputation for clutch kicking during his tenure in the National Football League. Nicknamed "Automatic Adam" for his accuracy, and "Iceman" for his incredible poise under pressure, Vinatieri has converted several of the most crucial field goals in NFL history, including the game-tying and -winning kicks in blizzard conditions in the infamous "Tuck Rule Game", and game-winning kicks in the final seconds of two Super Bowls (XXXVI, XXXVIII).

Famous quotes containing the word adam:

    Had Adam tenderly reproved his wife, and endeavored to lead her to repentance instead of sharing in her guilt, I should be much more ready to accord to man that superiority which he claims; but as the facts stand disclosed by the sacred historian, it appears to me that to say the least, there was as much weakness exhibited by Adam as by Eve. They both fell from innocence, and consequently from happiness, but not from equality.
    Sarah M. Grimke (1792–1873)
